Momma's home!

They finally set Heidi free today. She's so happy to be home. Alexis didn't have any trouble remembering how to nurse. In fact, she got all excited, kicking about. It feels a little funny to me right now. I'm not sure when to step in and help or when to let them be. I find myself more in tuned to Alexis and her needs. I am sooo tired though.

Now to get Heidi healed up and all better.

5th night, believe it or not...

Well, Heidi's blood test today gave the news that she has pancreatiits and they're keeping her another day. So, we spent another day with Alexis and are going into our 5th night. I feel so bad for Heidi, stuck in that hospital room with no food and no baby. Hopefully she gets released in the morning and this nightmare can end for her. Tomorrow is her birthday, so coming home would really be great for her.

3rd night went well and going into 4th

Heidi is still in the hospital. Poor thing. She had another procedure today that got the last of the gallstones. She looked so much better tonight, more like her old self. She's got good color now. She should be coming home tomorrow. So, just one more night with the baby by myself. It'll be nice to have Josh and Heidi back home. It'll be a week or so before Heidi can pick up Alexis, so even though she can hold her if we give her to her, she'll need a lot of help.

Survived 2nd night

Alexis and I survived our second night together. I really should be showering instead of blogging right now. We went and visited Heidi last night. Mom and daughter were happy to see each other.

It's been good bonding with Alexis. I've kind of kept my distance even though they live with us. I've not wanted Heidi to feel like I was going to take over her baby when they moved in here. So this time has been nice. But I think we're ready for mommy to come home now.

Off to try and sneak in that shower before Alexis wakes up again. I might add a picture of the two of them at the hospital, but we'll see how they came out and if there are any Heidi would approve of. :)

Emergency Surgery, sort of...

Well, emergency in that her surgery won't wait till the scheduled date of the 24th, but not emergency like rush her in immediately. Heidi's gallstones are on the move and one has moved to a duct, she's jaundiced and itchy which indicates she's loaded with toxins or something like that. Josh took her to the emergency room last night and they kept her. She will be having surgery today.

So I have Alexis, who is 4 months old now. We had a good night, her, some formula and my rocking chair. So, here we go... another exciting episode in the Hernandezclan household.

Grandparent's Day

Friday, I was honored to go to school with Katie Ann for Grandparent's Day. She had interviewed me days before and did an oral report.

Katie Ann wore my high school cheerleading sweater to school and wore her hair in two ponytails just like I used to wear. Many kids brought cookies and goodies to share.

After all the presentations, we went to lunch. We each brought our own lunches. Katie Ann showed her hula hooping skills with six, yes, six hula hoops at once. I tried just one, but could only do it for a few seconds.

After lunch we went to chapel for a program put on my Mr. Cushings, students and a guest speaker.

It was a fun, memorable day. I look forward to next year!

Easy access to posting

Julee & Jess set up a bookmark on my browser so I can post easier. If you notice, there's no bar on my blog to get to my dashboard or anything. Posting used a lot of my limited brain power to remember where to go to blog. Now it's easier.
